Study: Bush, aides made 935 false statements in run-up to war

so have you guys been counting all the times FOX said Obama lied?
"Not since 1980 has the American economy seen such a rapid expansion of health-care spending. It rose at an annualized rate of 9.9 percent, far outstripping inflation and standing in stark contrast to other components of the BEA report. Exports fell 7.6 percent, and demand for imports declined by 1.4 percent. Consumer consumption rose 3.0 percent, but that came in part from the high rate of health-care spending.

US had seen a drift downward in health-care spending, but the trend began to reverse as Obamacare first officially launched in October. In the fourth quarter of 2013, health-care spending rose 5.6 percent, far above the 2.6 percent growth rate of the economy, to which it significantly contributed. Without the spending on health care in 2014 Q1, annualized GDP would have dropped to a recessionary -1.0 percent, according to economist Ian Shepherdson.- See more at: http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Columns/2014/05... -

Don't remember posting "in Libya" in reference to generals on the ground. If I did, I meant generals on the ground who were affiliated with Libya who have testified.

Generals on the ground who were affiliated with Libya at the time of the attack testified they were perplexed as to why no order was given to attempt a rescue. Especially after the first wave and a seven hours lapse before the second one when two more Americans died.

GOP health plan could be road to nowhere

Here’s the dirty secret about the House Republicans’ efforts to replace Obamacare: They haven’t even decided if they will hold a vote.

Not to mention, the House GOP would still have to repeal Obamacare in order to implement whatever alternative health care plan they release, which isn’t going to happen as long as President Barack Obama is sitting in the Oval Office.

The website outlining the entire GOP plan for health care reform has been posted by myself and others on several occasions.
The two most common sense baby steps that should have been taken first to lower costs of health care were ignored by Democrats. Why did they ignore them if they would have helped lower costs?
So why didn't the Republicans do these steps when they ran Congress for nearly 12 consecutive years - 6 under a Republican President???

The Obama party is over. The people aren't laughing anymore.
By Laurie Roth
Signs are everywhere now. The Obama Presidency and dictatorship is failing. We have a puppet president who from his very first year in the White House treated his role as pretend and make believe. I wouldn't be surprised if there are propped up "Barbie" and "President Ken" dolls lying all over the White House offices.
Like all good "con artists," Obama shows up looking good and talking smoothly (although he is looking washed out and worse all the time) with his known goal to cram lies, deception, and camouflage down our throats. We must take our Communist/Islamic medicine or be punished, if not destroyed, by Obama and his tentacles.
There are untold reasons to impeach Obama. In fact, there are 100s...too many to fit in one place. Several train cars are needed just to contain the breaches in ethics, law, U.S. Constitution, Judeo-Christian values, attacks on conservatives, energy, patriotism, reputation, property, foreign policy, business, and speech. Along with this growing smorgasbord of attacks shredding America, we have attacks on our very health and lifespan with Obamacare. "I'm still standing in line, Obama."
Several have written up impeachment papers and campaigned in public for this. Michael Connelly, Constitutional attorney and Executive Director of United States Justice Foundation, www.usjf.net , is boldly campaigning for Obama's impeachment and has his papers and reasons posted on his site www.michaelconnelly.jugsy.com . I have talked with him numerous times on my national radio show and been impressed with his courage and focus. When I asked him about pushing this without the votes in the Senate, he says it is still most important to do from the House, because it will give the investigators legal subpoena powers to demand all documents. Obama will no longer be able to hide behind "executive privilege" and games.
Judge Pirro, Fox News star, also called this week for impeachment of Obama, focusing on his dereliction of duty and cover up regarding Benghazi. She didn't mince any words with her statements as to why this must happen. I say, Bravo, Judge Pirro." It is about time some Fox News hosts find some guts and walk away from the Obama 50-yard line of kiss-up with an occasional, minor scold. Whoop-tee-do! All at Fox had better grow some real backbone, or they will be delegated into the "failed," "Obama-controlled media," as most others. Now, she and other Fox hosts must keep on this, though the threats will come.
Liberals and Democrats come out from among the fascists, socialists, Marxists, and communists that have clearly taken over the leadership in your party. You are no longer the Democrat party of old, as in the days of John F. Kennedy. Instead, by your own hands you have become a perverted, controlling, transformation machine that instantly wipes out freedoms, steals income from the masses, punishes for achievement, and topples Judeo-Christian values. Knowing the controls, fines, threats, taxation, controls, lines, and death panels all through Obamacare, you all voted it into law. You attacked the entire country with your signatures. The imperfect and many times compromising GOP did not sign on.
This indictment of Obama, his administration and the crux of the Democratic Party is, unfortunately, quite accurate. If this were written as a petition for impeachment, many would sign it.

That takeover probably could have been prevented had Frank not worked to thwart every attempt to limit the risks taken on by the two government-sponsored mortgage giants.
For 16 years reformers in Congress have tried to improve oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and prevent the government-chartered companies from putting the housing market and the whole economy at risk. All that time, Frank was involved in efforts to block those attempts, and in the last eight years he was a leader of those efforts."
guilty as charged
Sure keep repeating that bull crap and citing right wing sources like the Manchester Union Leader as if their opinions amount to facts.
Fact: When the housing market hyper inflated it was Republicans who controlled both houses of Congress and the White House.
Fact: No one was forced to make subprime loans. Unregulated mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac did it so that they could sell them off at a profit before they went bad.
Fact: it was the Republicans who refused to regulate the markets in mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps.
Fact: You're an idiot!

Idiotspeak. If that were the case any and all generals would apply, no matter their location. Lovell was in Germany dumbazz and was not in direct contact with anyone on the ground in Benghazi__therefore he didn't have firsthand knowledge of what had happened at the consulate or what was happening at the CIA annex (see Hicks testimony)

Lovell was not on the ground and could not have run to the guns period.

You're too fn cluless to post on the topic babe__maybe you (all)should stay on the game threads.

Juan Williams once worked for Jackson's organization. He openly admitted he left after realizing it was nothing more than a blackmail organization to get money from corporations to avoid being accused of racism by Jackson's lucrative race-baiting scam.

Williams wrote a book entitled "Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America--and What We Can Do About It".

And Juan is still a dyed-in-the-wool liberal.

Amazing how the liberal media somehow misses these breaking stories.

'This, however, ignores one of the key stated purposes of pushing for the top-down, command-economy overhaul of the American health-care system: bending the cost curve downward. As Congress prepared to pass the ACA four years ago, Obama told the House Democratic Congress,“[E]very single good idea to bend the cost curve and start actually reducing health care costs are in this bill.” The need to reduce spending on health care drove the debate, both in terms of government and private spending.

The scope of the new spending doesn’t suggest that it’s limited to just the uninsured. Nor does it come as a function of economic growth. The annual rate of GDP growth for 2013 was just 1.9 percent, less than a third of the spending increase in 2014, and less than a fifth of the increase in 2014 Q1. If growth in health care spending was linked to economic growth, as CMS concluded in regard to the 2012 data, then something has caused a major disruption and delinking of that relationship – and the obvious change has been Obamacare.

Is this new health-care spending really just an expression of joy over new coverage, as Obamacare supporters argue now? Fortunately, we have some metrics to judge this claim after two full quarters of rapid increases in spending. Since the White House declared victory on Obamacare as open enrollment ended, and insisted that “the debate is over,” a number of national polls have been published on the new law and support for its provisions. Not a single one of them demonstrates a rise in support anywhere near the rise in spending – or much of an improvement at all in popular perception of Obamacare.
